Nominations for AOA Bureaus, Councils and Committees

Updated Feb. 16, 2011

The AOA is now accepting nominations for open positions on next year's Bureaus, Councils and Committees (B/C/Cs), and we are seeking your input. Individuals and organizations may make nominations for any open position. Of course, nomination preferences will be given to those organizations that have positions designated for their specific constituencies. The nomination process closes on April 1.

For organizations with designated positions on a B/C/C, the AOA must receive your nomination information by April 1. If you choose not to submit nominations for your designated positions, AOA President-Elect Martin S. Levine, DO, will select someone to fill the position(s).


Organizations should send three nominations, in suggested order of preference, for each designated, open position. Individuals seeking self-nomination or recommending another individual for a position do not need to submit three names.
